of you folks in the political swamp. former president george w. bush said he had a good time but is never coming back. what he thinks he can do for mitt romney. >>> good morning from washington, d.c. it's wednesday, july 18th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm luke russert, filling in for mr. chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney is aggressively trying to shift the spotlight off his bane background and unreleased tax returns, escalating a counter attack on the president, out with a new ad, continuing the line of attack of croneyism. >> where did all the obama stimulus money go, friends, donors, campaign supporters, special interest groups. >> romneyng thatucce ere partly education and infrastructure or as the president awkwardly put it, if you got a business, you didn't build that. >> to say that steve jobs didn't build apple, that henry ford didn't build ford motor, that -- that papa john didn't build papa john pizza, to say something like that is not just foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in america. >> but romney'
to include the affluent and any renewal of the george w. bush era tax cuts. people out there in the country, as you mentioned, are trying to get a job. they see the immense challenges this nation faces. why is congress once again going to the bitter end on partisan issues at the expense of the american people? >> well, i'm ready to work to get people back to work. when bernanke was on capitol hill yesterday he said congress should act quickly to pull the united states back from the -- looking into the abyss with this fiscal cliff. yet the person who threw down the gauntlet was patty murray, leader of the democratic party, who said i would rather go over the cliff. that's what she said, she would rather go over the cliff in terms of what's happening with taxes. i think we should not raise taxes on anyone. the president agreed two years ago we shouldn't raise taxes on anyone in economic times like these, but the economy, luke, is worse now than it was two years ago. so, if it was a bad idea then, it is a worse idea now. i want to keep the tax rates as they are for at least a year, when we can
george w. bush and his failed policies left to us. we have put under president obama's leadership, 28 months of private sector jobs growth. would we like to be happening faster? you bet we would. the republican congress has done everything to stall this recovery. you know what, perhaps they might succeed. no one can argue the fact that last year, we created more jobs than were created in all of the eight years of george w. bush, that happened in 2010 as well. we need to keep moving foward. it would be great if the people of our country make change and put in some people who will create jobs. >> governor jindal, what about that point, this is guard motion, it this is job creation and more, overall, than the bush administration create snd. >> well, terry, let's look at the facts of the full four years, where president obama has been president, we have lost more than 500,000 jobs. you look at median family income has decreased. median family worth, two-decade low. by any measure his policies have been a failure. the president at his beginning of the term, give it three years. president o
. ronald reagan. let's go -- i mean every single president, george h.w. bush. >> it's a brutal job. they all leave broken. >> i mean look at obama. he's not broken but his hair is graying. they visibly age. >> bill clinton is not broken. >> oh, wait, i forget. bill clinton is not broken. you know why bill clinton is not broken because he refused to leave. >> he won't leave. >> bill clinton still in the hangar, four months later. >> they're broken when they leave but rehabilitate themselves. even nixon, you couldn't leave more broken than nixon but he becomes this age of saddle river, having journalists out to dinner, rewriting history books. even nixon can come back. there is life after the presidency if you handle yourself. >> history is like one of the reasons this is all so much fun and i think so important ultimately, is remember the way the founders described i think washington described the senate as the saucer in which -- >> the tea cooled. >> the tea cooled. >> that's what history. it takes our friend michael, says a rule, you can't write about a president in full until 25
make mistakes. obviously george w. bush in 2000, barack obama made mistakes back in 2008 when he was running for president. it happens. so, look, at the end of the day this is a big, big bruise on the left chin but he will recover. there's no question about it. i'll remind you to put it in context. howard dean was the former democratic chairman and ran for president. so he naturally is a partisan and he will say that. >> to you here, jimmy, alongside all of this has been the issue of fund-raising in london as well, a fund-raiser was held last night for romney in london in fact and many barclays bankers gave money to that. $25,000 to 5,000 were the amounts. involved were executives from banks involved in the interest rate scandal, the investigation that's going on right now in london. does this help with the optics of that 1-99% argument that has been made by critics of governor romney? >> i think that's already solidified in most minds of americans, especially democrats. the question is what do women ages 30 to 50, independents especially, think about this sort of thing. i don't
policy pop quiz that george w. bush faced in 2000. a local tv reporter in boston started peppering him with questions about the names of foreign leaders. he flubbed it, he couldn't rather remember a few. this isn't quite the same effect but it is troublesome for somebody who travels, has been the governor and who in the moment seems to be speaking the truth of what he saw. >> joe scarborough and former governor howard dean weighed in this morning as well. here's what he said. >> what's he going to do in israel? look around and go -- >> i'm a tad bit worried about the trip to israel. >> the palestinians should have all of jerusalem and what's he going to do in poland? say hitler was right? >> this is a disastrous trip from one end to the other. do i think he'll recover? probably. but this is probably the worst trip that any presidential candidate has taken. >> robert, worst trip ever? will he recover? >> of course he will recover. let's put this in context. yes, he's running for president of the united states, it's a very important job but he's human and humans make mistakes. obviously
's support of same-sex marriage, and also said he has a soft spot for george w. bush because of what he did for aids. but he added, quote, i'm glad he's not in power anymore. and george w. bush himself seems to agree. he told the hoover institute it was awesome being president for eight years but he doesn't miss it. bush said he has, quote, no desire for fame and power anymore. he said, quote, i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and that is your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> now here's your "first look" at how wall street will kick off the day. the dow opens at 12,805 after rising 78 points yesterday. the s&p gained 10, the nasdaq added 13. taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo the nikkei was down 28 points while in hong kong the hang seng tumbled 215. stocks rose tuesday after fed chair ben bernanke told congress the central bank would consider ways to stimulate growth if the economy further weakens. bernanke's lack of specifics before a senate committee drove stocks lower in early trade. he did say the economy is suffering but eventually j
forward as a nation and not go back to the policies of george w. bush which brought about the whole economic crisis. >> let me ask about the tax cuts expiring. my position in the senate democrats is the gop pledge, obviously not to vote to raise taxes, can be gotten around by letting the tax cuts expire on january 1st and then vote on a tax cut for those who make less than 2$250,000 a year. let me play for you what minority leader mitch mcconnell said. >> democrats in congress are now saying that they would rather see taxes go up on every american at the end of the year than let about 1 million businesses keep what they earn now. >> is he right and where do you see showdown going? >> no, he is not right. we will have a vote next week. it will give 100% of the people a tax break on the first $250,000 of income. beyond that, if you are over that, your income over that is taxed at the bill clinton rates. those rates were fair and just. those rates led us to 23 million jobs created and a surplus instead of deficits. mitch mcconnell should join hands with us. let's get it done. that mean
politics, george w. bush giving his colorful reflection on his time in office. quote, i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not going back. >> eight years was awesome. i was famous and powerful, but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i don't want to undermine our president or whoever is president. and a former president can do that. i think it's bad for the presidency itself. >> the former president also said, quote, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well, but he can do well would you tell me. annou medicare and social security, you've earned the right to know. ♪ ...so what does it mean for you and your family?

h.w. bush and in 2004 by george w. bush against john kerry, the swift boating. all three of these politicians come from massachusetts. i wonder if it's something in the water there. but what you're seeing is very carefully constructed box. there are small nails that go into the box and there's some big rivets that go in there. the small nails are things like this controversy the last three or four days of whether he was -- whether romney was in charge of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, but the biggest piece of this argument are the tax returns. romney is going to be hammered on these tax returns until he releases them, and a number of republicans are now saying that. >> let me show you also the way the romney campaign has counter-attacked because they have released an ad featuring journalists. watch this. >> when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> by starting negative, by going extremely tough and extremely hard, looki
was up here in the primary with the candidates including george w. bush have been in fall in six presidential campaigns. now seven. hopefully i will continue in new hampshire. it is such a critical state. it is great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i knew he was a great friend said john mccain. he was doing a little bit of everything on the campaign trail. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. he is engaging in a presidential campaign. if you are an entrepreneur and a risk taker, you need a business environment. part of that will be dictated by washington. right now all the unpredictability in our economy, it is not difficult to get people to take a risk and to do what steve has done and what my family has done an ohio. my father was a small business guy who took a risk. he left his job in sales and started his own business. i asked him whether he would do it again. he said, i do not know. there's so much uncertainty out there. you have a government that does not seem to get it. they're making it more difficult and not easier to get jobs. steve has taken r
of the united states, two-term president, george w. bush has endorsed mitt romney. boy, could things get any worse for mitt romney? >> i was shocked by could you how quickly they made his romney endorsement into a campaign ad. this was fast. take a look. >> you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> most of the media wants to get obama re-elected -- >> the elite media the regular media? >> what does batman have to do with the presidential race? rush limbaugh says it could affect the election. >> rush is having trouble with the name of the villain in the movie. the name of the villain is bane. >> bain. and there's now discussion out there as to whether or not this was purposeful. >> i think rush may have a point. >> i want to send every job in gotham overseas! there will be blood before i release my tax returns. >> frank sounds like most republican candidates. >> i'm a fiscal and social conservative. ronald reagan is
w. bush making it perfectly clear he has no interest in joining the public discourse. in a recent interview, mr. bush talked about his role as former president and why he's staying out of the public eye. >> i think it's bad for the presidency to have former presidents believe yating, opining, or telling people how it ought to be done. eight years was awesome, and i was famous and i was powerful, but i have -- i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i -- i don't want to undermine our president. whoever is president. and a former president can do that. and i think it's bad for the presidency itself. either you're in or out of politics, peter. and i've chosen to be out. i mean you can't be halfway. you know, and given the environment today, with all the blogs and this that and the other i mean it's like, you know, i told -- i -- pretty unattractive metaphor, but i said i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm -- you know, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but, you know, he can do well without me. >>
the president is. the president i think faces a reality much like george w. bush did in 2004. it is absence on bigger recovery. it is entirely possible he will get to election day without 50% of the voters saying they approve. some increment of voters he has to find a way to convince them to stick with him. the way you do that is by making the challenger up acceptable to voters. this struggle between the two sides to defind what the bain experience is whether it shows romney to be someone who has personified the problem i think is going to be a central tipping point in this race. >> even republican alabama governor robert bentley is chiming in saying release the tax returns although now he is saying his words is taken out of context. are republicans in large numbers also questioning romney's approach here? >> a few other conservative commentators, what romney is doing is somewhat unusual. he drew a very hard line saying you are not getting anymore tax returns from 2010 and 2011. the tax returns, the bain experience and offshore accounts is all part of one kind of broad set of issues that th
w. bush in december 2008 the companies would not have been able to preserve chapter 11 reorganization. mr. wilson, mr. bloom, mr. feldman, is mr. rattner's assessment correct? do you agree that there simply were no other options available aside from complete liquidation on the path that was taken? we'll start with you, mr. bloom? >> it was our judgment, and i have no reason to question it, and it was based on extensive talking in the market and bliss our collective experience that if the government had not provided the debtor and that general motors would not have been able and would have had to liquidate. mr. feldman? >> i completely agree. we were in touch with the largest financial institutions in the world. they were simply not going to provide capital. we spoke to the largest private equity funds in the world and they were talking about needing nine months to do diligence to make a determination as to whether they'll make an investment. it was simply, the u.s. government unfortunately was a lender of last resort, but it was the only lender in my view. >> mr. wilson
work quite well for george h. w. bush, attacking michael dukakis' jobs record in massachusetts saying he claimed there was a massachusetts miracle, it wasn't living up to -- to -- to the numbers. same things with bain capital here. if he is running as somebody who create jobs, we found real humans who lost their jobs because of decisions he made. make it so people don't trust him to build the economy and then they are given a choice for president they are toll rating and somebody who can't be trusted to reverse the trend. >> so okay, i want to pick up with something it is kind of an x factor that few people are talking about. you, dave, have in a recent post how the third party can have a major impact even with just a few votes. you cite the elections with both al gore and john mccain. talk about that and how third party candidates can swing the electoral college. >> well, if we are looking at an election where the incumbent is trying to disqualify the challenger, part of that -- people are just going to be dissatisfied with both candidates. in 2008 they liked those candidates n 2004,
. remember, george w. bush did not attend the naacp for some time because he knew he would get that kind of a reception. >> we're going to have more on what happened in houston today later this hour. gloria, thanks very much. >> sure. >> there's also sobering news about a threat to the united states military and to israel. standby for details of a newly declassified pentagon report warning that iran's missiles are getting deadlier. also, a hazard of summer thunderstorms every airline passenger needs to be aware of. and a church school forcing little kids to beg for money. cnn's cameras are there. great shot. how did the nba become the hottest league on the planet? by building on the cisco intelligent network they're able to serve up live video, and instant replays, creating fans from berlin to beijing. what can we help you build? nice shot kid. the nba around the world built by the only company that could. cisco. energy is being produced to power our lives. while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providi
, it was -- it was -- we were in a full recovery mode. but it was way too late to save george h.w. bush. >> greta: i don't know how there could be a recovery between now and november by simple indicators, for instance, we are borrowing money, the interest rate is as low as you can get, you can't loosen up money. there are certain indcaishts where i don't know where the margins, where the president's going to see breathing room. have you problems in europe that are not getting better that have an enormous influence on the economy. nonetheless, he's the president and he gets stuck with it. i don't know -- i don't see any indicator in the economy that will help him enormously. >> i don't think we will have a strong rebound between now and election day. but the only point i was trying to make, even if we did, sentiment may have begun to turn in such a way that it's too late. >> greta: is there one ethnick group or demographic, which is key to the independent vote right now? >> well, no. i don't know how -- i couldn't possibly slice up the independent vote and tell you, you know, what its ethnic composition
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
for the republican candidate including george h.w. bush, including bob dole. i've been involved now six presidential campaigns and now the seventh. it's great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i know he was great with john mccain. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. as he said, if you're an entrepreneur and you're a risk taker, you need a new business environment. part of that is going to be dictated by washington. right now with the taxes and regulations, healthcare cost, the uncertainty over energy, all the unpredictability in our economy, it's difficult to get people to take a risk and make an investment and do what steve has done. my dad is a small business guy who took a big risk and left his job and start his own business. later years i asked him whether he would do it again, he had so said i don't know. there's so much uncertainty out there. frankly you have a government in washington who don't seem to get it and it's making it difficult to create jobs. steve is concerned now. on monday i will be helping the romney victory effort in boston. i will be speaking at couple
-frank legislation and the case being put forward by c. boyden gray, who served in the george w. bush administration. our phone lines are open. you can join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an e-mail. what is the constitutional argument that you are putting forth that this is not constitutional? guest: our argument is that there is no oversight for this huge bureaucracy. the president, once he appoints the director, will no longer have influence on what the director does, and not have a check on his or her power. the congress has no financial responsibility because the bureau is paid for by the fed, which is beyond congress control with its budget, and they can do whatever the concern all -- consumer bureau wants to do with the 18 statutes that have been handed to them, implemented by the fed or the trade commission, where several other agencies. -- or several other agencies. so, the whole world is turned upside down, and richard cordray can do anything he wants without any political check on what he does. it is unprecedented. there is no animal like this in the federal government, an
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looks very presidential-ish from a distance on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any note. there's no fred thompson legislative achieveme
of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smashhina. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making realç decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
'll see how far that goes cht it. it's not like the enthusiasm for george w. bush. >>> stay with us. the day's top lines are coming up. chances are, you're not me of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. >>> clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. here are today's top lines. >> if i were to loan you this to display here at the white house -- >> this will never go up in the white house. >> oh, it looks good on you though. >> my speculation about who mitt romney will choose as running mate, so it's fair to ask. >> that's a clown question, bro. >> a guy named joe biden. >> america runs on dunkin'. >> about dogs on top of cars, bain capital, bank account in the caymans. >> is it your belief that it's unpatriotic for someone to have a swiss bank account? >> if you are running for president is that the american people know and that you're an open book. >> should he release the tax returns? >> i would. >> that's been true of every presidential candidating back to mr. romney's father. >> i've had to face some hard truths tonight, billy.
on the programs many of them went to washington with george w. bush. one of them became the lead negotiator on the no child left behind bill. became the lobbiest for peerson the large testing corporation. about the charter school part of the whole deal. i talk to the people who negotiated the bill on the charter schools. nobody ever thought there was going to be a private sector involvement in the charleser -- charter school movement. everybody inhavingsed nonprofits would come in and take over a few schools and it would be a good way to innovate. nobody said internet schooling run bay private corporation who sets an anchor at some on secure school district in tennessee and announces it's a real public school. the amount of 0 private money -- that's going to the public school system is one the biggest consequences of no child left behind. it was something that the people at least in congress who put it together had no thought about. it was not in their picture at all. >> it all comes out of texas? >> yes, it all came out of texas. when you started the book how much time had you spent in tex
w. bush in that speech. >> good political point. way to score some points with our core audience. that's important to me because i want to be here. leeann, isn't obama the perfect president for this era? it is all about him, and we are all about us. thus we identify with him. >> maybe you have a point there, greg. but it doesn't surprise me because every president is about i and me in their speeches. it doesn't matter what side of the political aisle you are on. every time you give a speech they have to talk about what they do. >> i am removing everything you do from the show. >> really? >> yes. >> me, me, me, me. they are all self-centered. >> in his mind he is the king of the world, and he runs it all, and he loves his executive decision making that he can just go and do whatever he wants. so it is all about him. >> all right. >> bill, you can't naval gaze because you don't have a naval. is a more individualistic culture a good or bad thing? >> bad, and i agree. it is not just the internet. it is facebook specifically. think about it, not only is it about you, you, you, but the
